Lunching Ladies

So, on Thursday one has Ladies Morning. One plays cards, and eats brunch. And of course, it's not about showing off, but when it is one's turn to host, one likes to be praised. And healthy but delicious snacks is where I can excel, thanks to SP!!!

Dynamite Spicy Sushi Sauce
Incredible! 5.0/5
(9 ratings)

You can use this sauce in spicy tuna rolls, or on a volcano or lava roll. The Sriracha hot sauce is the secret ingredient (the one with the rooster on the bottle!). You can be authentic and use "real" Japanese Mayonnaise (Kewpie), but good old Hellman's works fine too.

Spinach in soy sauce and broth (ohitashi)
(no ratings)

Ohitashi (hitasu is a Japanese verb which means to soak) is another typical Japanese food which is less known and lighter than Goma-ae.
It is extremely easy to cook and often gets admiration at a party with a bit of work to wrap it with nori (seaweed.)

Vegetable-Packed Guacamole
Very Good 4.5/5
(65 ratings)

My favorite Mexican restaurant serves a guacamole that's heavy on vegetables--and flavor. To slim it down even more, serve with carrots, celery and cucumber slices.
